The B-Ark / Steve Evans new boss at Stevenage
« on: March 17, 2022, 08:31:59 AM »
I see that Mr Evans has now been appointed manager of Stevenage. No doubt Mr Raynor will be joining him there too!

The B-Ark / FA Cup 3rd qualifying round - is it still a regionalised draw?
« on: September 19, 2021, 11:18:07 AM »
Can Norwich United be drawn against Boston United in the next round?! Ken and/or Scotty need your extensive knowledge on this! Is it still a regionalised draw and, if so, what clubs could Boston United be meeting.

The B-Ark / Congratulations to Michael Emery - FA Vase finalist!

Congratulations must go out to former Pilgrim's keeper and my ex-gym instructor Michael Emery! He will be in the Warrington Rylands squad this weekend for their FA Vase Final against Binfield. Not bad - from playing for Skegness Town in the Lincolnshire League to Wembley! Well done mate!  B) B)

The B-Ark / Floodlight down

Looks like one of the floodlights at the Jakemans Community Stadium has blown down. 
Glad that no-one was injured.

The B-Ark / Only Connect - spoiler alert!

REALLY CLOSE contest involving the only Pilgrims team which seem to be playing at the moment! Watch it on iPlayer if you've missed it. Credit to the Town and Club!

The B-Ark / "Spenny on the big stage"
« on: October 07, 2019, 07:41:58 PM »
Page 4 of the week's NLP. Spennymoor Town have been CHOSEN by the English Schools FA to stage an England Schoolboys International in April. Congratulations? Perhaps we could pass them on when we meet them later (should have been earlier!) in the season. It's a funny old game...… can we now have our 3 points, please?

The B-Ark / Lincolnshire Football League
« on: May 11, 2018, 09:34:22 PM »
Not everyone's cup of tea this competition, but does anyone know what is going on as far as who is actually the champions of this 10 club league which was granted Step 7 accreditation at the start of the season? Ruston Sports are currently showing as 1 point with a game in hand behind leaders Skegness Town, who have completed their programme. Ruston's game in hand was due to be against Grimsby Borough Academy and arranged/re-arranged for 7th May but mysteriously no result is showing - not even as postponed - and there is nothing on either club's twitter! The League's own website is also annoyingly quiet about it too. I think Skegness Town also applied to play at Step 6 (North Counties East Division One possibly?) next season, but not sure if this was dependant on them retaining their title or not. Answers on a postcard?

The B-Ark / Youth Team today v Long Eaton Utd
« on: February 07, 2018, 06:47:33 PM »
Played on the artificial pitch at Skegness Town FC this cold afternoon we lost 5-1 to a very well drilled Steve Welsh side. Always had a lot of respect for Steve and it still rankles that the club never publically thanked him for his contribution in the earlier post-Evans days. Good also to see JB!

The B-Ark / Skegness Town FC

I see that Skegness Town have applied to play Step 6 football from next season although, and I may be wrong on this, this could be dependent on whether they retain the, now Step 7, Lincolnshire League title. Personally, I think they should have applied for promotion last year when they had a stronger squad but this is the first season they have had the chance to play on the grass pitch at their nearly 2 year old stadium. They are currently only placed 7th out of 11 teams so far this season and competed with a very much weakened squad for the first half of the campaign. The Lincolnshire League was given Step 7 accreditation at the beginning of the season but has, as in most years, been plagued with withdrawals and teams conceding games which is an affront to the hard work carried out by it's Committee members and sponsors who have tried not only to restore the League's former good reputation but also to enhance it.

Congratulations on being called up to the England C Squad. Well done manager Paul Fairclough for recognising his talent. A promising future awaits currently BUFC's longest serving player!

The B-Ark / Congratulations to the Youth Team - Champions

CHAMPIONS!!!! Well done to Bunny and the Team!!!!! Divisional Champions after the 1-1 draw away to Nuneaton. What a brilliant season in both Cup and League. A credit to the club and town.

The B-Ark / Youth Team

Another win, this time 4-0 away to Rushden & Diamonds means that only 1 point is now required from the last 2 games to secure the League title for the best set of lads currently wearing BUFC shirts. Well done again to Bunny and team. Come on folks, let's make sure that the Board recognise the Youth Team's achievements this season when the trophies are handed out after the final first team home game of the year!

The B-Ark / Youth team beat closest rivals!
« on: March 29, 2017, 08:07:44 PM »
A great result for the only shining light at the club at the moment (apart from the Salford City win!) - a 3-0 win against Basford United. Barring slip ups on a first team-esque scale, Bunny and the lads should now win their National League U19 Alliance Division and round off a great season for the team. A good attendance at Tattershall Road this afternoon and it was good to see JB and Craig there too. Well done lads! My choice of club player of the year is definitely going to one of the Youth squad this season!

The B-Ark / Nationwide Referees strike - 4th/5th March
« on: January 18, 2017, 07:47:36 PM »
According to today's Telegraph it appears that there is a call for a Nationwide Referees Strike scheduled for the weekend of 4th/5th March. Not sure how much this affects professional and semi-professional football but is bound to affect the amateur leagues on those two days. I see we are scheduled, at present, to play AFC Halifax Town that Saturday but I am sure that the strike won't be universally supported and there is little danger that this game will be postponed. The strike is about the increasing assaults on officials - apparently 1 in 5 have been attacked which is totally unacceptable - and the failure of the "Respect" campaign. I can see support for the strike affecting, but not totally interrupting, the Lincolnshire, Boston and Peterborough Leagues and the Lincoln & District Sunday League that weekend but not much else. I could be wrong though! I know that the lack of new referees means that within the next 2 seasons that most Step 7 or equivalent matches will only have one official appointed with the support of 2 club linesman - this is already adopted by the Peterborough & District League.

The B-Ark / Another Youth Team win!
« on: December 01, 2016, 08:26:20 AM »
I see the Youth Team won 5-1 away at Peterborough United yesterday. What a brilliant result which now pushes the Pilgrims up to 4th in their National League U19 Alliance Division with 3 wins out of 4 games. Coupled with the great FA Youth Cup run and that they are progressing in their League Cup, what a great season the Youth side are having compared to the miserable one the first team are having. I am sure the first team will turn things around in the New Year but perhaps not outshine the achievements of their younger colleagues this season! Well done to Bunny and his team!
